"JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR" the ultimate Musical, watched it with my father 12 tunes in the Cenema/Movie theatre in 1973 in Etobicoke, Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

"Leaving on a Jet Plane" Also " "Sunshine on my Shoulders" "feeling the WARM GLOW of the sun/environment on MY SHOULDERS, a nostalgic look back to the vintage good old times back in Thunder Bay where I was born {1966-1972} Definately worthwhile NICE HAPPY entertainment for you. AND ESPECIALLY: "Thank GOD I'm a Country Boy!!!"

" , "WHEN I WAS YOUNG!!!" AND "SAN FRANCISCAN NIGHTS!!!" Eric Burdon of the Animals is the gold standard in not only vocal work, but warm and fuzzy orchestrations that show hospitality with a capital "H!!!" See also Sir Paul McCartney's Wings "Mull of Kintire!!!" AND please NEVER FORGET "Rememberance Day!!!" By Bryan Adams.

"EIGHT MILES HIGH"!!! BYRDS with "Chimes of Freedom Flashing", and " Mr. Tamborine man - Dylan's version", and"TURN!!! TURN!!! TURN!!!", and "MR. SPACEMAN", and "Maybe be Friends with you", and "My Back Pages" the ULTIMATE Jingle Jangled 12 stringed electric guitar {Rickenbacker} sound is another "Warm and Fussy" orchestrations that show hospitality.

October 17th, 1980 Heard U2's "
I will follow", " Where the Streets have no name" AND "I still haven't found What I am looking for."
And I thought THEY were the next JIMI HENDRIX's, THAT song reinforced my appreciation for the unconditional love I had with my Father, so I had dreams of covering U2 songs some day when I could afford a guitar. I bought an Atari 800XL 8-bit {Only $100.00, traded a $400.00 Canadian Coin Collection for TRAX Floppy Disk Drive} and saved a fortune at the arcade. I programmed in Basic, the "Star Wars" theme song - A new hope" I was already a big fan of Computer Music, which came out of my favourite Loretta Lynn, Roy Clark, and other catchy tunes from the 1930's, inspired to me at an early age by my Father's Interests in music. My hopes of becoming a "18 wheel Truck driving man" were dashed by the high cost of rig insurance, so I made the decision to spend more time studying technology, which lead to College aspirations.

March 12th, 1986 Heard "SIMON AND GARFUNKEL's "
THIS SONG made me CRY!!! Richard Critchley, my Landlord at the time, gave me his favourite tape, because he knew I liked music, and when I heard THAT SONG I sobbed HEAVILY the whole song!!! Because at the time the ENTERTAINMENT business was the "shits", and it gave me the incentive to look more at my TV for fictional entertainment!!! {not factual educational TV usually MY case being a "COMPUTER NERD" instead} which helped me RE-DISCOVER legacy WARM AND FUZZY moments of the past which helped me NOT DISMISS the commercial fictional entertainment business.

Sometime in 1987
Watched's "Tommy, the Pinball Wizard" ALSO from Much Music
This important inspiration of what a Concept Album is, the ultimate Rock U mentry about a socially deprived refuge, not of the Video game era, but the old "Pinball Age."

Some time in 1994, HEARD HEARD Triumph's "
bought a $65.00 nylon stringed acoustic guitar, and THE ROLLING STONES Anthology, and THE WHO Anthology music books, and in 3 weeks of heavy slogging taught myself to play accoustic guitar, covering favourite songs from oldies radio, RUSH'S "WORKING MAN", and later the 1990's Grunge movement, and heavy metal. I was always troubled by seeing this very Famous Ric Emmette, FINDING myself searching hard to find the right excuses to talk to him, though he'd be only 20 feet away at Songwriting Association of Canada and other music events. I wouldn't overcome the social inadequacy problem for years. I was in perpetual fear of saying the wrong thing, and losing friends.

Some time in 1997, HEARD CONSPIRACY Badfinger's "Carry On"
" I can't believe what happened to these nice people, who can hate these smiling innocent faces enjoying themselves entertaining people. Jimi Hendrix's Star Spangled Bannar," gone for no good reason, and John Lennon's "Give Peace A Chance" , Kirk Corbains "Smells like Teen Spirit" things that defy understanding. Was absolutely heartbroken, all the radio stations paid tribute to the loss of Kirk Cobain.

"Jennipher-Ecles" sexual repression is over!!!, and " I'm Alive!!!" got me out of many sad times, " Air that I breath", "Long Cool Woman", "Just one look", "On a Carosel", "Carry-Anne" {Mary Anne}, " Bus Stop", "Stop!!! Stop!!! Stop!!!" " Pearl Jam, I'm Alive!!!" also got my spirits up when friends were tied up.

OTHER IMPORTANT SONGS INFLUENCED by the BUDDY HOLLIES!!! Again I need to do my job properly, and not fall on my ASS and embarass myself in the unforgiving and unrealistic corporate mucus business {American Idol-Big reward for the lucky one - No consideration for everybody else in the music business with people ACTUALLY crying over lost chances, with whole futures going down the toilet, despite very good presentable submissions???} I've become aware because IT'S OPEN SEASON for MAGGOT MANAGERS/BOSSES to look forward to showing disrespect to human beings everywhere in the GTA, which is GOOGLE CORRUPT AS HELL. CSN&Y "Woodstock",{My hopes of getting back to the garden some century} " Teach your children well!!!" {My favourite CSN&Y Song, if nobody likes these kinds of songs anymore, my future is sunk too!!!} Gram Parson's " Devil in Disguise!!!" another sexual deprivation {All the princesses, {not Leia all of us males are stuck with and CURSED heavily WITH!!!}, AND THIS ONE PRETTY PLEASE IF IT'S POSSIBLE Joe Cocker's Woodstock submission, "I GET BY with a little help from my FRIENDS!!!" PRETTY PLEASE in some century with tons, and tons of sugar on it!!?! "Wooden Ships on the Water" need to listen to more CSN&Y!!! They are gonna tell me oceans what is wrong with things!!! FOUR DEAD in OHIO!!!!!!!
THE ROLLING STONES!!! "I just want to be your friend", "Paint it Black", "Playing With Fire", "Time is on my side", "Mother's Little Helper", "Under my Thumb", "Start me up", "Wild Horses", "DR. HOOK!!!", "Brown Sugar", "Heart of Stone", "Nervous Breakdown", "HEY!!! HEY!!! YOU!!! YOU!!! GET OFF OF MY CLOUD!!!", "It's all over now", "She's a BITCH!!! {Princess!!!}", "Come on", "YOU CAN'T ALWAYS GET WHAT YOU WANT!!!", "I CAN'T GET NO SATISFACTION!!!", "It's only Rock and Roll - BUT I LIKE IT!!!", "Let's spend the NIGHT TOGETHER!!!", "HONKY TONK WOMAN!!!", "Can't you Hear me Knocking!!!", "STREET FIGHTING MAN!!!" {What's a poor man to do, BUT SING FOR A ROCK AND ROLL BAND!!!}, "SOLD OUT FOR THE 59th time!!!" {MISS OUT ON THE BEST CONCERTS!!!}, "CHILD OF THE MOON!!!" {ONE GUITAR OF MINE is TUNED DOWN 3 SEMI-TONES FRIN E TO COVER THIS SONG when I first picked up a guitar and Started playing in 1994!!!}, "This could be the LAST TIME!!!", AND FINALLY!!! "JUMPING JACK FLASH!!!" {repeat last "Working Man Moment - RUSH" Jumping Jack Flash - It's a Gas 12X's or more, I'm SATAN'S LITTLE HELPER from 320 years in the future!!!}.
